Tradition Alto Adige Pinot Bianco 2020

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2020 Pinot Bianco is fresh, with a bouquet of wet stone, savory herbs and dusty yellow flowers. Round and soothing in feel, its pleasant inner sweetness is matched by citrus tones and bright acidity. There’s lovely balance as saline minerals linger long through the finale. $24.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, May 2022) — 5 days ago

Les Vins Du 7

Bulles de Comptoir #9 Tradition Champagne Pinot Noir Blend

And now for something quite different. A champagne rebel and man of his own time and mind, Charles Dufour is producing some extraordinary wines. And they live up to the hype. A nice mild amber color with lazy, small bubbles. The nose is rather intense with a nice bit of nutmeg up front. Plenty of citrus fruit that never overwhelms but is certainly enveloping. Woodsmoke and wood, red apples, and just a little honey.

As natural as natural wine gets. Organic, hand picked, herbicide free. This most certainly tastes natural, in the best way possible. 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, and an added 10% of Pinot Blanc. From beautiful Côte des Bar terroir and aged for two years on lees. 80% of the wine comes from the 2018 harvest with the remaining 20% coming from a perpetual reserve dating back to 2010. With an extra brut dosage of 3 g/l, there’s rather zippy acidity and innate purity here.

This really is one of those bottles that unique and highly, highly expressive. Very nuanced with outrageous complexity. The palate is fantastic with apples and a bit of cinnamon to boot. Every sip screams natural and terroir driven. Special, special stuff. Unique and gorgeous.

Domaine Fourrier

Vieille Vigne Les Gruenchers Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Gorgeous garnet, star bright reflectivity. Rim to rim continuity. Cedar dusted black cherry and strawberry glow warmly in a vanilla and baked cran and ripe red currant dappling. There are red apple leanings and roobios-tulip whispers in a complex and seductive nose that stoops in bushes of thyme and all spice pods. Rich mouthfeel exhibits bits of its green youth, but has unveiled to reveal its abundance with a lengthy decant. Tart cherry and sweet tobacco, tart raspberry essence, dried violets and rose petal, dried strawberry and beet soaked thyme. Grossly underrepresented in this assessment, as the whole is like a wondrous river in a florid wood undulating with ripples of fallen blossoms. Astounding.

Cardedu

Bucce Bianco 2019

This wine is deep gold with notable haze and visible lees, due to lack of fining / filtration, which gives this wine great texture and weight.

The extended skin contact contributes not only the color and texture, but the aromatic notes of ripe cantaloupe, honeydew, orange peel, grapefruit pith, also dried orange blossom, freshly cut herbs, wet slate, tomato leaf, and salinity.

Vintage 2019. ABV 13%.

Excited for this delish and versatile, food-friendly wine.

Lovely wine from Collio. Smell of exotic fruits with a hint of vanilla. Warm on the palate, it’s rich yet pleasantly fresh. — 23 days ago

Dry, briny, delicious — complex on the palate and then totally clean finish. Refreshing and not boring. Loved it with salmon and Brussels sprouts :) — 21 days ago

Gevrey-Chambertin Pinot Noir 2018

Finally tried Kuheiji’s Burgundy project (NB: their efforts in France yielded one of my most memorable sakés in 2019 - the Camargue; notes on Delectable). This was quite the changeling - started off reductive with a red-fruited palate, light airy touch, juicy acidity, and no noticeable oak. Combined with the hint of fruit sweetness in the back end, I just shot straight for Beaujolais in my blinded guess. Should have waited as my mistake became quite apparent over dinner. With air, the wine took on a darker/black fruit profile and showed obvious signs of oak treatment, though well-integrated. It was all blackcurrants, plums, raspberries, cinnamon, dark chocolate, cedar, and a hint of earthiness/minerality (appellation?). The palate remained airy and juicy, with that fruit sweetness in the finish perhaps indicative of the warm vintage. I enjoyed this as it had energy, though DC found the wine a little too oaky for his liking and KK noted some bottle variation with this being a weaker pull. — 4 days ago

Chemistry Wines

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2019

Purple in color with medium intensity and a wide purple rim.

On the nose black currants, raspberries, spices, tobacco, black pepper, light oak, spices and herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with raspberries, currants, red plums, cherries, light oak, spices, chocolates, dark coffee, light earth and black pepper.

Tangy finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Pinot Noir from Oregon. Soft and elegant. Fruit forward and nicely balanced.

Smells more like a Syrah, and tastes like a blend of a California Pinot and burgundy. Interesting stuff.

Good right out of the bottle and good by itself or with food. A nice porch wine, too.

Aged in stainless steel and 15% oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$19.
